RISE NY has hooked up with BrandBlack to release another meaningful collaboration with this upcoming RISE x BrandBlack Desert Mirage release.
The collaboration is inspired by RISE NY co-founder Chase Peso’s military background with the U.S. Air Force.
They’ve dressed the sneaker in camo printed suede, using a distinct color palette to reflect how the heat and sand and dunes of rock begin to appear to the eye over time. The left tongue features a debossed hit with a four stripe chevron, representing his rank while he was serving. While, the right tongue sees Will Durant’s famous quote “Our knowledge is a receding mirage in an expanding desert of ignorance” debossed. The interior lining is finished in calfskin leather, and the outsole features the brand’s dual durometer injected Jetlon technology.
There will only be 240 pairs of the RISE NY x BrandBlack “Desert Mirage” to release that debuts on Thursday, July 14th in-store and at noon on July 15th online. The retail price tag is set at $240 USD.
